The year: 1899. On the dusty trails of the American traveling show circuit, there are two main contenders in the battle for audiences: “Cowboy Chris’ Wild West Extravaganza” and “Dapper Donny V’s Circus Carnival Sideshow.” For years, these arch-rivals have used every trick in the book (and some too dirty to write down) to steal crowds from each other, but when a new show takes to the road—one that offers its thrills not in the form of sword-swallowing or whip-cracking, but in the burgeoning art of “strip-tease”—they must join forces to bring down the upstart. Will “Professor Porkpie’s Bim-Bam Burlesque Spectacular” fall to the machinations of these con-men, or will nudity conquer all? There’s only one place to find out: in STRIPPER/CARNY/COWBOY, November 5 at 8pm at The Slipper Room.
For one night only, “Mayor of Burlesque” Jonny Porkpie teams up with “Strange for Hire” sideshow legend Donny Vomit and international cowboy superstar Chris McDaniel for an encore performance of a show unlike ever seen on this earth. Featuring Bunny Buxom, Frankie Sin, and Jo "Boobs" Weldon. It will also serve as Mr. Vomit's going-away party In the immortal ballyhoo of the 1890s, Miss This At Your Peril.
